Franco Cookson 1 Feb Solo dnf Fell off everything once today, unfortunately this yan (right from the top) did the old ankle in. Climbing like a plum today. I blame flu.

JBO 29 Mar, 2019 Lead RP Only had one pad so didn't fancy going ground up/highball. Toproped a couple of times then lead first go with pre-placed gear. The gear is decent but would be difficult to place on lead.

Rob Knowles 22 Mar, 2019 Sent x Ground up, took a few practice falls from higher and higher then committed. Crazy experience, adrenaline hit me hard on the jug at the top and made the most ungraceful top out ever. Had to sit down at the top for like 5 mins to calm myself down!

spidermonkey09 3 Mar, 2018 Sent x Ground up. Plenty of pads, yet somehow also not enough...takes the piss even as a highball, it's a long way up. Climbing is fairly straightforward but there's a lot of air beneath you. The line is unarguable. Psyched.

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 3 Mar, 2018 Sent Ground up. Wanted to do this for years, as it really is a striking - almost perfect - line, with an easy(ish) start leading you to difficulties just as things start to get challenging. That said, it's the height that is the real issue - 6C can feel pretty 7B when you're up there! That said, there's no way it's anything more than 7A (but what a 7A!!!).

Duncan Campbell 28 Feb, 2016 Sent dnf Wasn't overly bothered but after everyone else did it I was urged to give it a go and with the amount of pads it was too tempting not to. Took a while to commit/do middle crux move then before I knew it had done the tricky move to the penultimate pinchy layaway. Didn't feel as though I had it well and felt spanned out so tried to drop off but landed badly and smashed my arm into my knee. It's very swollen now but thankfully not broken!! Will I be back???
